The Aperol Spritz is a cocktail commonly enjoyed during the warmer months. Although this beverage is mostly requested in spring/summer, it’s a delicious beverage option for any month or occasion! The combination of sparkling wine and orange infused liqueur keeps it light and refreshing, no matter the season. Take fall for example. You can easily turn a classic Aperol Spritz into a festive favorite by swapping the sparkling wine for hard cider and garnishing with cinnamon sticks. Voila! The spiced orange and apple flavors are a perfect seasonal match, making today’s recipe an easy autumn favorite!

Aperol is an aperitif, with lower alcohol content, commonly enjoyed in the afternoon before dinner. It’s known for its slight bitterness and bright orange color, which also suits the fall season well. The liqueur is a mix of bitter and sweet on the tastebuds with notes of orange, commonly topped with prosecco and garnished with sliced oranges.
The warm flavors in the liquer lend itself well to the har apple cider, providing a crisp seasonal twist, with tastes of autumn in every sip!
There are so many varieties of cider on the market, most of which are gluten free. My suggestion is to pick your favorite hard cider to mix with the spritz for a guaranteed delicious fall drink! You could also mix things up with a variety of hard cider flavors!
